DECAL SHEET REVIEW


Flying Leathernecks #32002
Chesty P’s Iron Fists – Marine Corps CAS Part 1
1:32 Scale


From a doctrinal to operational level, United States Marine Corps airpower maintains a fundamental bond between Marines on the ground and those in the air. Close air support (CAS) involves one of the key roles that Marine Corps aviators fulfill, providing all manner of air cover to support the people on the ground.

            Flying Leatherneck Decals’ new decal sheet covers some of the history surrounding USMC CAS aircraft in this sheet.  The title of this release pays homage to Chesty Puller, the most decorated Marine in history and a beloved figure in USMC folklore.  The four airplanes covered on this decal sheet are:

The decals were designed by Flying Leathernecks Decals and printed by Microscale.  The print quality is exemplary and carrier film is precisely applied right at the very edges of each marking.  These decals are designed to fit the Zoukei-Mura  Skyraiders and the Academy Hornets.

This is an excellent decal sheet overall.  Its thematic focus covering different aircraft really works well, and the color schemes that were chosen are diverse and interesting.  In particular, I really like the F/A-18D scheme with its black top and tails.  It’s really distinctive.

Many thanks to Dave Roof of Flying Leatherneck Decals for the review sample.  You can find them on the web at http://flyingleathernecksmodels.com and on Facebook at https://www.facebook.com/Flying-Leathernecks-Decals-137660979588449.  The sheet can be ordered straight from their website or at Sprue Brothers (http://spruebrothers.com).
